Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


 

november in chicago

(thru the thick and thin)

 

and like the boughs we are stripped

of our flesh in a hurry of colors;

the north wind does not tolerate secrets

nor does it allow the preservation

of our dna under layers;

we have lost daylight savings losing

that savior of selves while our

own feet trample veins of what once we were—

born to seasons our deaths come by hours

and without interlocked fingers we are prey

to the gust and conditions

 

left cold

so cold.
